Jed Parson takes his music very seriously. But he is equally serious about having fun with it too.
So while he spent over 18 months making sure that his debut album Midnight Feast was just right, the videos for singles such as ‘Get Lost’ and ‘Everybody’s Stupid’ show that the Christchurch singer-songwriter’s is very much up for a laugh as well.
Then there is Tupperware Jungle. “Tupperware Jungle is very much a joke band of mine – it’s just me and a couple of friends,”chuckles Parsons over the phone from Christchurch. “We bill ourselves as a jazz band and we turn up at unsuspecting venues and play hour long renditions of Elton John’s ‘Crocodile Rock’. At our last gig, it went from the Elton John version to like free jazz… it’s a very fun gig.”
